Today is a big day for the film industry—today, the British magazine Sight & Sound released its list of the top 10 films of all time. The list only comes once every ten years, and it's marked by both strange selections and what some would call overall pretentiousness.
Take a look at the ten movies below. How many of these films have you actually seen?
2. "Citizen Kane"
3. "Tokyo Story"
4. "The Rules of the Game"
6. "2001: A Space Odyssey"
7. "The Searchers"
8. "Man With a Movie Camera"
9. "The Passion of Joan of Arc"
10. "8 1/2"
We think we can do better. Each editor of BroBible has submitted his favorite Bro movies with a brief description of why he nominated the film. Here's a completely subjective list of our top 10 most Bro films ever, ranked in no particular order.
The granddaddy of all Bro movies and quite possibly the funniest movie of all time. If you've never been to a toga party, never pondered whether your fraternity was about to go on double secret probation, and never given the speech, "Over? Did you say “over?” Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell, no!"... I mean, then college sucked for you. — Andy
If, after the first time you watched this crazy, f*cked up movie, you didn't want to hit the gym, better yourself, of just do something to change your life, then congrats—movies have no effect over you and no one will ever love you. For the rest of us, Fight Club was a welcome kick in the ass. — Andy
The Big Lebowski
The cultural pinnacle of Western Civilization, dude. I dare you to find me a better ensemble cast than Walter, Donny, and The Dude or a better last line in a movie than "The Dude abides." Maybe it's just because I'm trying to have a beverage here, man, love a good rug that really ties the room together, can't stand the f*cking Eagles (most overrated band in history), and think the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers is the ultimate civic institution. Oh, and f*ck nihilists. BRB in 20, going to smoke a joint and gulp white russians the rest of the afternoon. — Brandon
Hey Aaron Sorkin: You stay classy and all, but Ron Burgundy is kind of a bigger deal. Braggadocio, whale vag, and scotch. Lots of scotch. Will Ferrell at the absolute top of his game. If you have a tendency of peeing from laughing so hard, consider Anchorman a wet Pants Party. — Brandon
Not only does McLovin look like f*cking Aladdin, but quotes from this movie have accounted for approximately 20% of words exchanged between 16-22 year olds since its release. It's the ultimate high school adventure every Bro can relate to. — Robb
Arguably Robert De Niro's finest work, this movie takes the concept of manhood to entirely new heights. It's delightful, it's sickening, but overall it's impressive as f*ck. — Robb
Even for those who didn't find it funny, it teaches a Bro perhaps the most valuable lesson of all. At the end of the day, it's all about the 'ME' car. — Robb
It's a Wonderful Life
Cheesy? Yes. Over-simplistic? A little. Heartwarming? Absolutely. Frank Capra's 1946 masterpiece explores depths which man can sink to and the heights to which he can soar. If the point of movies is to elicit a wide array of feelings before sending you on your way with a full heart and in the direction of your dreams, none has ever fulfilled that duty more completely. Perhaps none ever will. — Reggie [We've given Reggie enough crap for this -- Editor.]
The Shawshank Redemption
Because Red and Andy had a Bromance before Bromances were even a thing, or considered highly questionable on a sexual level. Because I DO think a man working outdoors feels more like a man if he can have a bottle of suds. And because I'd crawl through 500 yards of sh*t just to watch it. — J. Camm
Something about Sylvester Stallone murdering people, VILLAGES OF PEOPLE, really gets my juices flowing. Carnally. — J. Camm
